Chores are still meh and my siblings always make clear that they hate their chore lists. Saturday will be a day of organizing and cleaning. If we have time, I hope to be able to do some shopping as well. Oh! Another *stupid* frustration of mine is the fact that my mom decided to obliterate the fruit in the house and dump it all into a "fruit salad" that I will not eat. She insists that it will be eaten well before it goes bad, but I somehow doubt it. I won't touch that with a ten foot pole because the melons mix with the other fruits, which makes it all taste like melon. I do not like melon. Bleh. Meh. Minor problem.
Hmmm, well I guess I should talk about these scones. The recipe is titled Vanilla Bean Oatmeal Scones. I thought "Those sound delicious! I should try out the recipe!" The appropriate title for these scones would be: Oatmeal/Whole wheat pancake-tasting bread with a powdered sugar glaze thing. Yea. Not a fan. I saved the scones in the freezer so that I can slowly eat them. If they had more vanilla bean taste then I wouldn't have problems. The whole wheat flour and the oatmeal just killed the taste of vanilla, which is a shame. I hope the whole wheat chocolate chip cookie recipe doesn't taste so strong...

Try it if you are a fan of a heavily whole-wheat-tasting sort of scone. :) The recipe is here.
UPDATE: I have decided that I need to play around with this recipe. I plan to skip the glaze, but add some raisins, flax seeds, nuts, etc. Hopefully it will turn out nice and moist and delicious! :)
